|You've seen a bunch of photos of the new grandstand and press box taken from the field. Here's a look from the press box, courtesy of the Dartmouth sports publicity office. The view will be a lot better when the scaffolding is removed ;-)|
•While a story on the Leesburg Today site is centered around Harvard-bound football player Noah Reimers being the 2014-15 Virginia High School League Group 5A Male Student-Athlete of the Year, several current and future Dartmouth players get a mention, including Reimers' Tuscarora High teammate David Chalmers. Also mentioned in the story are Woodgrove wide receiver Dylan Mellor, Heritage defensive back Chris Aguemon and Tuscarora grad Anders Peterson, who is on a Mormon mission before heading to Dartmouth as an offensive lineman.
•KiJuan Ware, a popular Dartmouth assistant in 2004-05 now coaching quarterbacks at Williams, will work with the Denver Broncos this summer as part of the Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship program. Find a brief mention HERE.
•While a Dartmouth alum works on developing a better metric for determining the top athletic departments in the Ivy League, the Learfield Sports Directors Cup tries to do the same thing nationally based on 10 men's and 10 women's sports. (Find the full national rankings HERE.)
With the conclusion of the NCAA's spring sports season, Clearfield's top 10 athletic programs are:
5. North Carolina
7. Ohio State
8. Penn State
10. Notre Dame
And how did the Ivies rank?
An Ivy League release noting that the average of 76.8 led all 27 non-Power 5 conferences (LINK) sent me back to check how the Ivy's sister conference ranked. The Patriot League football schools:
NR Holy Cross
The Salem News has a brief of D'Agostino, who had been hampered by injury since turning professional. (LINK)
Here's a post-race interview with D'Agostino:
